In order to exemplify our idea that inter-band nesting can favor superconductivity arising electron repulsion in layered, non-Bravais lattices, we have looked into the two-band Hubbard model on a stack of honeycomb lattices with the fluctuation exchange approximation. By systematically varying the band filling and transfers, the inter-band nesting is indeed found to give rise to gap functions that change sign across the bands, with a time-reversal-broken di + id2 intra-band pairing symmetry.
